Oh, Lucille, baby, satisfy my heart

car

Tonight I obtained a beautiful piece of machinery: a dark blue 1982 Mercedes-Benz 300SD (pictured). It is, for its age and use, very attractive. I plan to continue to baby it in every way possible.

Those of you who are familiar with the now-cancelled best-TV-show-ever Arrested Development should notice a resemblance to the car that was driven in the show by Lucille Bluth. While I could not find a picture of the car itself, I can provide a picture of Lucille, for whom my car is named.

I look forward to many hours reading the ShopForum and tinkering all around with her. Hooray!

    When I read the title of this post I was sure that you were making a reference to to Cool Hand Luke, which is still entirely appropriate. Ya know when I first met you I didn’t even know if you had a car because you were always on your bike. And then when I finally saw your car I always thought that it just didn’t quite seem like you. But this is a whole other story! This car has the kind of class and timeless style the screams “I’m Brian Hardy’s car!”. I can’t wait to meet her in person.
